Trenches along Maclehose Trail stage 4 (around 22.406128N/114.262329E) [????- ]

I attempt section 4 of the MacLehose Trail on the hottest Sunday of the year earlier.  I actually didn't make it but that's another story.  Before I quit and while I was on the way, I noticed in some places around Wong Chuk Yeung and beyond, there seemed to be trenches right next to the path.  I took this photo at around 22.406128, 114.262329:

12 Jun 1954, Spitfire crash in Port Shelter, Sai Kung

Date(s) of events described: 
Sat, 1954-06-12

I recently heard a story about a privately owned Spitfire crashing into Sai Kung's Port Shelter some time in the 1950's. Do any of the old timers (or historically minded new timers) have any recollection of any stories related to this - or is it just an urban rumour?
